    There was discussion about staggered setups from some pretty smart people in this thread.
    Find a low-mileage one-owner unmodified '04/'05 and you're golden.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
    Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    Subaru clearly states against using a staggered setup with regards to wheel width..

    As far as the discussion in that thread, I disagree with SD with regards to staggering the wheel widths. Under normal driving, there would be no concern. However, during hard driving, there is a much larger chance that you will encounter a torque differential between front and rear tires i.e. wheelslip will occur on the front before it occurs on the rear. With a Torsen or mechanical center differential, this is less of a concern. However, the viscous coupling used on contemporary WRXs (not STis) will break down under sustained wheelspeed mismatch. In the case of the DCCD in the WRX/STi, the differential torque control is achieved via a planetary gearset and clutch. Consistent wheelspeed mismatch will cause premature wear to the clutchpacks and necessitate replacement (very costly). To me, this is a very high price for something that's intended just for looks.

    Threads merged, as the subject matter is identical.
